The Truth about the Previous Scripture (Torah, Bible)

bible

What does the Quran say about the previous books? Were these books textually corrupted or were they available in an intact form at the time of the revelation of the Quran?

The following Quranic verse may indicate that they were indeed available intact:

[5:47] And the people of the Injeel shall rule in accordance with what God has brought down therein. Those who do not rule by what God has brought down are the wicked.

The Imams and their man made prohibitions

imam

This article is written in response to numerous emails we have received enquiring about many prohibitions which are proclaimed by numerous Imams and which cannot be found in the Quran. The following email is one example:

“Salaam, we have converted to Islam 3 years ago, we have been reading various pages on your site and we are very impressed with the clarity of mind you have and your sincere effort to preach the Quran. Can you please help me on the following issue: my son has been going to a local mosque and lately has been very confused by the way the Imam is forbidding so many normal things in life! He is told he cannot listen to music, he cannot have any pictures or portraits at home, he cannot wear silk or gold, he cannot keep a dog as a pet and so many other things. It sounds like the Imam is virtually saying that we should not have any enjoyment in this world! When my son asked the Imam to show him any Quranic evidence for all these rules, the Imam quoted 11:116 saying that the words in this verse prohibit us from having material luxuries! Could you please give us your valuable opinion because my son is very confused, keep up the good work, wasalam.”

“You would think they were awake, when they were in fact asleep. We turned them to

the right side and the left side, while their dog stretched his arms in their midst”

18:18

It is traditional among Muslims all over the world to regard the dog as a dirty animal that when touched would void the wudu (ablution) and infect the one who touched it with “nagasah” (dirty impurity)!

The Truth about Abraham’s Sacrifice

God Never Ordered Abraham to sacrifice his son

Suppose you have a 12 year old son and you taught him all his life that stealing is wrong and that he should never steal any money and for any purpose. Now suppose that one day you wish to test your son, would you test him by commanding him to go and steal some money for you? Would you command your own son to do what you taught him all his life that is wrong, to see how much he loves you?

Is the Burqa truly Islamic?

By: Chris Moore

The Islamic world is experiencing a rise in women wearing the burqa claiming it to be part of the Islamic dress code. Whether it is worn by choice or force is open to debate as very few women are able to, or prefer not to voice an opinion on the matter. Those who have, generally argue against the compulsory (by law as in Afghanistan) wearing of this garment with a minority claiming the right to wear it citing Quranic and prophetic instruction.

The Dress Code for Women in the Quran

649642485_o

Introduction:

Before presenting the Quranic rules for women’s dress, it is essential to be reminded of the following:

1- The Quran is the only source of law that is authorised by God (6:114).

2- The Quran is complete and fully detailed (6:38, 6:114, 6:89 and 12:111).

3- God calls on His true believers to make sure not to fall in the trap of idol worship by following the words of the scholars instead of the words of God (9:31).

4- God calls those who prohibit what He did not prohibit, aggressors, liars and idol worshippers (5:87, 6:140, 7:32, 10:59).

The command to follow the Quran alone is given very clearly in the Quran, see: Dozen Reasons

Does the Quran really allow the beating of women?

By : Edip Yuksel
The verse 4:34 of the Quran orders believers to beat their wives; so, Islam is a male dominant religion.” Many of us have heard this criticism from Christians, atheists, agnostics, etc. Personally, every time I read 4:34, I felt that something was wrong. How does God, the Most Wise order us to beat our women? What kind of solution is that? It is in contrast to the verses in which God describes marriage:
“Among His signs is that He created for you spouses from among yourselves, in order to have tranquillity and contentment with each other. He places in your heart love and care towards your spouses. In this, there are signs for people who think.” (30:21)
